First workout in a week.

It was good. I used some vacation time and took off work early yesterday, and headed to the gym around 1:30 p.m., when it was wonderfully non-busy.

I did three miles on the treadmill and felt wonderful. I freaking hate the treadmill, but after a week of nothing, I felt great to just do something again.


3 miles, 26:54, 8:58 pace. Then I did bicep, tricep, and deltoid workouts for upper body, and hamstring, quad, calf, and hip abductor workouts for lower body.

Other things I like right now:

– Beyonce’s song, “1+1”

– Running to the song, “Rock the Casbah” by The Clash

– That the NFL lockout has ended and we will have football! And Fantasy Football at that! I am already bugging my brother-in-law about setting up a league.

– Zapp’s Sweet Potato chips. If you don’t have Zapp’s you were already missing out. Now you should be REALLY sad. These are awesome.


– That our kitten loves my husband so much. They are too cute.

    I love reading teen books! I’ve never had Zapps, but I’m curious to try them.*

    I am beyond excited about the NFL being back! I was worried that TV and Sundays/Mondays in general were going to get reaaaally boring!

    I actually love a good treadmill run sometimes! It’s nice to see all the stats at the end — super gratifying. Great run!
